Colt Chambers to Develop and Produce PANIC! THE MUSICAL!; Concert Set for 54 Below, 3/24
Colt Chambers and company, Colt D. Chambers Theatrical Enterprises, will serve as Lead Producer in the development and workshop of the brand-new musical, PANIC! The Musical.
PANIC! is a rough-edged new musical based on the songs and music of the American rock band Panic! At The Disco, with a book by Christina Rose Sabia, and concept by Alexis Acar.
PANIC! The Musical is about Oliver Murphy, a confident musician, who is recovering from the reckless behavior he developed after prematurely being thrown into the touring scene. His fortitude is suddenly uplifted after meeting the pristine Andi Witko, who is slowly but surely straying away from her faith after a recent tragedy lead her to question its validity. Panic! The Musical explores the journey of two young souls colliding their world's, and forming an unconventional bond that proves to be a mixed blessing.
The musical features songs from all four studio albums, including hits such as: "I Write Sins, Not Tragedies," "Lying is the Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off," "Ready to Go," "This Is Gospel," etc. PANIC! The Musical is a thrilling, whirlwind of emotions that will have you singing on the edge of your seat.

"I am honored to be able to be a key role in bringing the show to life," stated Chambers, when asked about producing PANIC! The Musical, "Christina [Rose Sabia] did an excellent job with the book and Alexis [Acar], the director, knew exactly what she wanted when she developed the concept for this show. I have been a fan of Panic! At The Disco for a long time, and their music has always had a theatrical sound in my opinion, so whenever I caught wind of this show, I knew I had to be involved. And, like myself, the creative team is young, but full of knowledge, and that's what we are trying to market: the young energy and youth. After all, we are the future of Broadway."
Colt has announced that the he and the creative team are currently planning to hold an industry workshop performance and reading in the late Spring/early Summer.

I believe that things happen for a reason," said Director/Creator Alexis Acar when asked her thoughts on Colt Chambers producing PANIC!, "and bringing Colt onto the PANIC! team is one of those moments."
"It's inspiring to have Colt on our team. He shares our belief that anything is possible if you have enough determination," mentioned Christina Rose Sabia when asked the same question, "It's the perfect match."
